discussions in the biden group, my discussions at the white house a year and a half ago and for that matter, in the joint select committee. and if the president doesn't agree with our proposal and our outline, i think he's got an obligation to send one to the congress. and a plan that can pass both chambers of congress. if you look at the plans that the white house has talked about thus far, they couldn't pass either house of the congress. we are ready and eager to talk to the president and to work with him to make sure that the american people aren't disadvantaged by what's happening here in washington. >> good morning. you know, i think at this point, pretty much most folks in the country and certainly in this on taxes. i think we understand that. but to the speaker's point, we have not had any discussion and any specifics with this president about the real problem, which is spending. we have got to do something about the spending. and obsessions to raise taxes is not going to solve the problem. what will solve the problem is, doing something about the entitlements, taking on the wasteful
now on the jobs report. joining me is former economic adviser to vice president joe biden, jared bernstein, and ron insana. you heard the speaker and his comments moments ago. this is good for the president, the jobs report, no doubt. he can argue that, my policies have been working, better tax hikes for the upper 2%, more amenable because the economy is coming along. how do democrats leverage this in the key cliff negotiations going on? >> i think the key point is that there is some momentum in the jobs report. the labor market diminished a little bit in december. that's why the unemployment rate fell down, not because of extra jobs. but all told, especially expecting sandy's damage, it was a pretty good report and it shows that there's some und underlying momentum. the argument from the president or from anyone who cares are this economic recovery, it would be a crazy time to throw a monkey wrench at an ongoing recovery that has a little bit of momentum. >> ron, to you on this. talking about sandy, there seems to be a lack of sandy effect as some had thought initially. we see a
of it with all of us in superhero costumes. so the president was superman, biden was spider-man, hillary naturally was wonder woman and for some reason i was the green lantern. but first of all, i nearly had an aneurysm when the helicopter went down. because i had been sitting in the west wing of the white house in 1980 during the iranian hostage rescue mission when the helicopter went down. and so, you know, my first reaction, is, oh, no, not again, but the team, the equipment, the training, all dramatically different. and we were really out of -- you know, we had no idea what was going on inside the house once they went inside the house. until, until we got the coded message. >> that was it? what did you think when you heard that? >> well, you know, there was no -- there was no -- there was probably a sigh of relief in the room, but there was really no letdown or no high fives or anything like that. because we still had to get them all out of pakistan and in a way, the diceyest part of the mission still was in front of us and that was getting everybody out safely, and so, really, it w
. >> the president said there was a war on women. joe biden said they'll put you all back in chains, we've had the race card, the war on women card, the class warfare cards. >> you can take a lot o of quots and mitt romney said corporations aren't people. he didn't care about the poor. only 47% of america is disto disavow. >> this will not stop with you guys. give me an example where they played the race card this year, give me one example. >> there's been many times. >> name one. >> when both sides have engaged in the type. >> name one. this is what mitt romney said on the 47%. >> it's racist? >> i didn't call it racist. >> give me an example of racist. >> i didn't call it racist. >> give me an example of the race card being played. give me one example. >> sean, what i'm saying is that there is speech out there that is being taken out of context and it's not helpful. i did not hear the president of the united states calling republicans evil. >> well, remember that the president of the united states who is supposed to represent all of the people once he's electedd referred to his political opp
biden shopping at costco last week. did some holiday shopping, and posts pictures with jim senegal and warren buffett's right hnd man and bill gates' dad on the board, too, and receive early dividends and ay less tabs. several reports say the demand for microsoft's surface tablet is so weak that they cut the orders from the asian manufacturer in half. i own microsoft stock. lauren, where is it now? >> 1% and stuart, i feel bad for you, microsoft was the second worst performer in the dow jones for the month of november and needs all of the gains today. and you know, if you've ever walked past time square, i know it's kind of right by where we work. that surface pop-up store from microsoft is always jam packed, i guess it's in a busy area and it's surprising to see they're cutting back on orders. stuart: next time i go in there if i do. i'll press for an early dividend payout of microsoft's 50 billion dollars in cash so some of us can benefit before the end of the year, but i'm not holding my breath on that. all right, lauren, thanks very much indeed. by the way, the dow industrials
romney showed up at a costco. >> bill: joe biden went. mitt romney decided he should go. >> he showed up in la jolla, california. he bought all kinds of things, most made in china. he bought paper plates, dixie cups wrapping paper v8 juice drinks pretzel snacks, bisquick and bottled water. he also got a model car which will be a gift for one of his grandkids made by the mysto company. >> bill: they've got a car elevator! >> good point. tmz got the run-down of what he bought. they also reached out to mysto the people who make the toy cars. none of their products are made in america. they're all made in china. >> bill: evan, you've reported, now we know from john sununu echoing mitt romney that he's in la jolla and barack obama is in the white house because obama depended on people who were dependent on government. it is just the handout, the takers are the ones who elected barack obama. >> right. the gifts argument. i think there has been a split on the language of this, whether or not the actual ideals of
cutter. you remember her? she was the deputy campaign manager for the obama-biden ticket suggested that mitt romney might have committed a felony on his tax returns. sunday night, she e-mailed them to reach a fiscal deal. republicans have balked at raising those tax rates. they are identified by marcus at countries job creators. >> for the first time in two decades, they are there will tell revenues go up as part is the plan. but they have to tell us what they're willing to do with revenues. it's definitely very hard for republicans. reporter: earlier you saw the meeting of four congressional leaders on november 16 at the white house. at that time, harry reid spoke of a follow-up session was to be held next week. that never helped happened and the clock ticks on. jenna: we have that clock right on our screen. just in case you forgot. jon: get ready for the baby. just into fox news, prince william and his wife, the former kate middleton, they are expecting. standing in a grocery line, looking at the tabloids, and one of them said she is pregnant. they may be onto something be till t
.c.-area diner, vice president joe biden said if the gop were willing, the debt deal could be done in short order. >> it would take 15 minutes from the time the decision was made by the speaker of the house to pass and make permanent the middle-class tax cut. the president would probably have me sprint up to the hill to bring the bill down for him to sign. >> reporter: but even after the latest in a series of private calls with the president, house speaker john boehner says the white house is stone walling. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house is has wasted another week. >> reporter: this morning in his weekly address, president obama is holding a hard line on raising rates for the wealthy. >> and if we're serious about protecting middle-class families, then we're also going to have to ask the wealthiest americans to pay higher tax rates. that's one principle i won't compromise on. >> reporter: but how much higher could be the key. the top tax rate is set to rise from 35% to 39.6% on january 1st. when asked if a middle ground co

not on the conversation with president obama and vice president biden and 13, but we met with speaker boehner today and majority leader reid. i feel the same way, that at least they're listening to us for the first time, at least in my history here, about a very significant issue. so we hope to be a catalyst for good. >> let's hope for the best. governor, thanks so much for joining us. >> thank you very much. >>> sounds like military make believe, but it's not p. up next, new camouflage. stay with us. of washington about the future of medicare and social security. anncr: but you deserve straight talk about the options on the... table and what they mean for you and your family. ancr: aarp is cutting through all the political spin. because for our 37 million members, only one word counts. get the facts at earnedasay.org. let's keep medicare... and social security strong for generations to come. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing i

. >> really? >> yep. they know who she is big time. >> biden. >> suppose she makes the decision and decides to run, you paralyze the democratic side. no donors are going to move, rightly so, because they want to find out -- >> and it completely influences the republican side because they're going to have to get somebody that can raise a bunch of money -- >> that's what mike allen said earlier. the only thing that matters is how do you go against her? how can you beat her? >> that's the only litmus test. >> mark halperin, you had said that last hour. the prism that republicans are viewing potential candidates, whether it's marco rubio or jeb bush or anybody else, can you beat hillary clinton? >> you know, i mean, it's just incredible. this is, i think, going to be my seventh presidential cycle. i've never seen a cycle like this setting up this way where she really is not just in her own party but in the race overall. i don't like, as you know, you tried to get me to talk about "game change 2."

. >> right. so there was some word during the campaign when joe biden let slip that $1 million would be the threshold for which they would begin to tax the wealthest americans. marco rubio on a saturday morning addressed as well. they are going after each other. senator marco rubio and president obama in these dueling addresses. >> we must get the national debt under control. taxes will not solve our 16 trillion-dollar debt. only economic growth and form of entitlement programs will control the debt. woe must reform the job killing tax code by getting rid of unjustified loopholes. our goals should be to generate new revenue by creating new taxpayers not new taxes. >> let's talk about that for eakd is. president obama said we have to make the wealthest americans pay more taxes to help our debt. that number happens to be, if you do the president's plan, the raising the income rates levels on the wealthest americans from 36% to 39.6%. that number comes out to about $83 billion. about 8 or 9 days worth of funding the government. so that clearly won't fix the trillion-dollar problem per y
